The present-day Roses owes its origin to the Greek colony of Rhode, a founding nucleus that took advantage of the privileged location of this territory.
The bay of Roses is a magnificent setting for water activities, and is home to the fishing port and the important marina. The town's link with fishing is close, and from it derives a rich gastronomic tradition that has led to the emergence of internationally renowned chefs such as Ferran Adrià.
Both in the surroundings and in the town centre of Roses, nature and culture come together with recommended places to visit, such as the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, the Aiguamolls del Empordà, the Visigothic Castrum of Puig Rom or the imposing Citadel of Roses.
Roses has an assorted offer of hotels and rental apartments to enjoy an excellent stay.
